Isn't this picture great!
It was taken at a New Years Eve party my parents threw.
It must have been the early seventies.

I think my Mom must have been channeling Priscilla Presley!
That hair is too cool!
And she is wearing Palazzo pants and a tunic, in purple!
With that long strand of chunky pearls,
my mom was Rockin'  that night!

My Dad is the guy on the far left...with the BIG grin!
He looks mighty proud of His Woman.



My parents watching Annie and her family!



At our home, Christmas Eve.



~ Happy Anniversary ~
I love you both so very much!

xo,
misha

Feel free to wish my parents a happy day :)

I previously used the 70's picture in a post.
Somehow the comments with that are staying attached to the picture.
Oy. Blogger!

Cool photo. Reminds me of what I looked like forty years ago. And I found out recently when I was going through old photos. I'll have to post some of them sometime. I THOUGHT I was fat then. Brother!! Sadly, I still do now. :(

What a great photo and I loved hearing about your memories of staying at your Nana's. Staying with my grandparents was always the best for me. Your mom is beautiful!

What a wonderful tribute to a fine looking couple. Glad that they straightened up and improved their parenting skills after you got past the teenage years, LOL.

Catherine said...

your parents photo is very nice , before and now!!

I remember when my mom wore a very similar hair-do piled high on her head. I think she wrapped toilet tissue around her head at night so it would all still be in place the next day. How fun! Your mom is a beauty!

And her pearls.
You are blessed to still have your parents!

Hi Misha, What a neat picture of your Mama --and the guys!!!!! She was/is a beautiful woman---so that's where you got your beauty I'm sure! But--I don't want to leave out your Daddy--who is a handsome man. Maybe you are the best of both of them! Where do they live?? I think you told us once--but I forgot.

Hugs,
Betsy

Thanks for sharing those photos! It is so fun to see a happy couple...after many years. Have you ever asked them the secret to a good marriage? My parents are still married, it's been over 45 years. My husband and I decided to get married on their wedding day. :D

I love your mothers "style" and your dads grin.

Loved this post, your parents WERE rock'n. Still are!

And we ALL felt the pain, thankfully the tides turn and we appreciate them after a while :-)

Mary @ Neat and Tidy said...

What a fun picture!

M said...

Your mom looks fantastic then and now. That 70s picture looks so much like photos from our family album! It took me right back to my mom's signature look back in the day and even my grandmother who was quite a fashionista in her time. I bet your folks really enjoy visiting your home even if you put them to work!

Your parents are beautiful, your mum is an absolute doll! I thought she had a long dress on, omigoodness, I had forgotten all about palazzo pants, LOL. What a great photo. :)

Hope y'all are having a wonderful weekend, Misha!!!

Mary said...

I loved this photo when you posted it before, it puts me back in time, I love it! Happy Anniversary "Mom and Dad"!. You're right Misha, your Mom is very photogenic, I only wish I could be so lucky. Hurray for them both!

I finally posted something the other day, I hope it makes you smile. It's just a silly Fred being Fred.

Amy said...

Happy Anniversary to your lovely parents from the gang in Norway! I´ve always thought your mother was beautiful, I absolutely adore the photo of her and your dad standing by the fence looking at the horses! And your dad is quite a handsome fella also ;-) It´s so obvious where you get your lovely looks my friend, you were blessed from both sides :-)

Bianca said...

Early seventees I was born.... ;-)
You have your beauty from your mom, that's obvious, but your father was and is a handsome guy too.
Is it their weddinganniversary??
And how is your dad and his backproblems? Did he have his surgery yet??
Thanks for sharing those gorgeous pictures.
Big hug! Bianca

I feel like we haven't conversed lately. I don't know why. I still like ya' and everything. Busy crazy lives I suppose. Love these pic of your parents. It is so COLD here my hands are freezing trying to type. Not that I'm upset about it. Compared to summer, I'm loving this. Hope you are doing okay and everything is alright. :))
